're assessment of this. >> obama: the path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. but america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. we can't cede to other nations the technology that willpower new jobs and new industry, we must claim it's promise. that's how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national treasure. a forest and waterways our crop lands and snow capped peaks. >> cenk: so michael, first off were you encouraged by these portions of the speech? >> yes, i was encouraged. i was inspired. i thought it was a great speech. you know, i thought what the president did really well was he talked about fighting climate disruption both as moral obligation, but he also pointed out that transitioning to clean energy is a great economic opportunity. it's not just an obligation that we have for future generations. it's an opportunity that we have right now to move beyond dirty fuel. i thought the president did a great job. >> cenk: all right michael, we know that it wasn't just words in this case, because "the new york times" with a story
and clean energy policies that the president can enact and congress can enact. the president can do a lot of things. the environmental protection can do a lot of things. the department of energy and agriculture can do a lot of things that don't need congress. congress itself, we don't know what is going to happen. we tried three years ago to pass the climate clean energy bill. that was defeated. anything that ambitious to pass is unlikely this time. >> michael: listen, he said the governor of nebraska dave heineman completed an evaluation of that same keystone pipeline. john boehner had this to say about it. he said nebraska's approval of the new keystone xl pipeline route means there is no bureaucratic excuse, hurdle or catch president obama can use to delay this project any further. he and he alone stands in the way of tens of thousands of new jobs and energy security. i mean, that's putting it right on the president. >> here is the reality about the keystone pipeline that comes from canada to the united states to deliver oil. that oil is going to somewhere no matter what. this is becom
change. >> the solution to climate change is energy policy. the opportunities of energy policy so vastly outweigh the down sides, i will be a passionate advocate about this but not based on ideology but based on facts based on science. i hope to sit with all of you and convince you this 6 trillion-dollar market is worth millions of american jobs. >> jennifer: from a political point of view this is a tough issue, the keystone pipeline, and especially with respect to environmental activists. obvious liquory is a big advocate for stopping climate change. what do you think he'll do about keystone? >> i remember he--climate change the copenhagen conference in 2009 senator kerry preceded hillary clinton there, and she proceeded barack obama as one of the areas where he has done significant work on behalf of the administration in this first four years and we'll continue on those interests going forward. it's an interesting thing jennifer in global diplomacy economics is becoming a far more meaningful element of global diplomacy. there is now an assistant secretary of state that focuses on energ
be done -- where is there common ground i'll say that on issue of energy or climate change with this congress? christine? >> well, as was mentioned this is evolution, this speech is what evolution looks like sounds like in american society. and the president basically said we're not going to be held back with a few doubters. we're going to go with the consensus here. you say i'll create jobs. well you have to create them in what? how about in clean energy. there is is infrastructure bill that includes money for clean tech jobs. and they agree on this. so if you wanted to take bold swift action on climate change and jobs you could pass a clean tech infrastructure bill this week and put americans back to work. >> jennifer: well, i'm telling you he laid it out in his inaugural address in part one, and part two will be the state of the union, which we'll hopefully have you guys on to talk about. thank you both so much for joining us on this fantastic day. up next the republicans made it their mission to limit the president's term to one. we'll have that sto

tie sod said it would be nice if the president focused on jobs and the energy crisis in the second term. >> jobs has not gotten lost. energy, the push too renewal energy, immigration reform starting off, of course, with the efforts to reduce gun violence in the country and climate change. climate change part of the renewal energy those are priorities for the president. i think in these first 18 months before people start saying, he is a lame duck. don't pay any attention to what he is doing. the first 18 months, we are going to see some action on those news. lois from new york. >> i am going to turn the phone down. i was listening to you. i was thinking about the things you thought president obama has done so well. i thought he was in my dreams? i just finished saying everything. i think he has done a great job on all of that. i remember, bill, when he first came to. i remember him signing the legislation into law where women could get equal pay for equal work. >> that was the first one, first one he signed. >> i remember when i was in college my
.s. putting its own fiscal house in order to be a leader on the world stage. kerry, a long-time clean energy advocate says it is a $6 trillion market worth millions of american jobs and we need to get in the game. >> the solution of climate change is energy policy. and the opportunities of energy policy so vastly outweigh the downsides that you are expressing concern about and i will spend a lot of time trying to persuade you and other colleagues. >> he was less committal about whether he would approve the keystone pipeline because it would cross the border between the u.s. and canada. kerry is expected to get a positive recommendation from the committee and if you will confirmation from the full senate next week. back with more bill press after the break. stay with us. alright, in 15 minutes we're going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'

not paying attention to the right targets in terms of where our political energy has gone. so much energy goes into u.s. senate races the white house, congressional races and nobody's paying attention to state legislatures or to governors. >> yeah. >> bill: so here, the republicans take over and what do they do? right? they push through this stuff both the electoral college or these voter suppression measures. and there is nothing congress can do about it. nothing the white house can do about it. right? >> right. democrats may have naively thought they surely wouldn't try something like that but it is true republicans put more money and effort into state legislative races. they have a broader network out into state capitols than democrats generally speaking. >> every 10 years, it's important because that's when the districts are redrawn. >> right. >> right. good for you being on top of this. is there anything, any efforts to undo it or anything people can do? >> there is no organized effort yet that i know about. >> any organization like people for the
